Vintage Nike Adverts


1983_Nike_Terra_Tc_Its_a_Cracker.JPG

Arguably the best known sports shoe manufacturer in the world, Nike really took off in the UK in the early 1980's and most collectors see this as their best period. All the classics from the 80's are here in advert form, Terra TC, Internationalist and lots lots more. As Nike did not start to advertise in the UK until 1980, these are the earliest ads we have but they then carry through until 2005.

A lot of adverts in this section are as interesting (if not more so) than the official adverts released by the manufacturers. Here you will find adverts that form a rich timeline from the mid 1970's to 2004/5. A great resource if you are trying to date and research the price of a shoe. Also included will be shoe surveys, shoe buyers guides, magazine articles etc. Watch this space.
